Visitors will also have the chance to visit and enjoy the museum's many attractions for free. 

On the same day, the Royal Observatory Greenwich will host a planetarium show for children with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and their families and carers.

The event, titled 'Morning Stars', gives you the chance to explore the night sky and find out from a Royal Observatory Astronomer what will visible in the sky that night and in the month ahead, with opportunities to ask questions afterwards.
